Li'l Sparkies are fire/electric creatures that appear in Super Mario World. A Li'l Sparkie named Watt later appeared in Paper Mario.


Super Mario World

Li'l Sparkies first appear in Super Mario World as enemies found in castles. Like Boos, Li'l Sparkies are invincible to anything except contact with Invincible Mario. Larger variants named Hotheads appear in castles as well.

Paper Mario

Main article: Watt

In Paper Mario, a young Li'l Sparky named Watt is one of Mario's partners in the game. Watt is the sixth partner to join Mario. She joins him in Shy Guy's Toy Box.

Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3

Li'l Sparkies appear in Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3 in the e-Reader levels, Swinging Bars of Doom and A Sky-High Adventure. They act the same as in Super Mario World, but Li'l Sparkies can now be defeated by Statue Mario, and by Hammer Mario's hammers.

Super Princess Peach

Li'l Sparkies return once again in Super Princess Peach as enemies that appear in Shriek Mansion and Bowser's Villa, and cannot be defeated by Peach no matter what she does.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga/Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions

Li'l Sparkies appear in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions as a small cameo in a pseudo-sidescrolling level to reach a Monty Mole. If Mario or Luigi get attacked by a Li'l Sparky, both have to go back to the beginning.


  • Watt from Paper Mario is the only known Li'l Sparky in the Mario series to have a name.
